Tahini & Grape Molasses
1 cup tahini (ground sesame seed paste)
1/2 cup grape molasses (thick grape juice syrup)
Place the tahini in a deep bowl, then slowly add grape molasses and mix them well. This traditional Turkish dessert should be eaten with Turkish Bread (if not available, fresh French or Italian bread) for breakfast or as a dessert. We especially like to eat Tahin Pekmez on cold winter days, it gives energy and is very filling. My mother used to say "if you have it every morning, you will never feel the cold".
Tahini is very healthy, does not have cholesterol and lasts long. It also contains B vitamins and protein like milk.
Grape Molasses are a good source of energy and carbohydrates because of the high sugar content. It is ideal for daily doses of calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium plus it contains lots of minerals.
You can purchase Tahini (Tahin) and Grape Molasses (Pekmez) from Turkish or Middle Eastern Grocery Stores or online at Tulumba.com.
